of tone. that was all about george w. bush's second inaugural. and then for barack obama's spending 50 million on his second inauguration, the times wrote, fund raising is lagging so far for inaugural plans. and lamenting the fact that in this economy, 50 million dollars was tough to raise. just an interesting point. next on news watch, hillary clinton serves it up and the press reacts. >> what difference at this point does it make? >> hillary clinton finally answers questions about the benghazi debacle delivering a powerful performance to convince lawmakers and the media to see it her way. did it work? find out next on news watch. power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. but with advair, i'm breathing better. so no
spending is why we had the recession. obama continued the bad job for four straight jobs and this is the result. >> eric: but they would say isn't for government spending we would have no growth? >> government spending it's not in spite of government spending it's because of the government spending. we think of it, you got two guys in the world, "a" and "b". if "b" gets unemployment benefits who do you think pays for it. it's "a" and it's taxation and that is the root of the problem. >> you drop taxes like the blogo sphere, no he raised taxes. did ronald reagan raise or lower taxes? >> he cut the highest tax rates. you want to look at rates from 70% to 28%. now, is that a good enough tax cut for you? >> eric: what happened? >> we had great growth. when the tax cuts took effect, we phased in the tax cuts but when they took effect, it went like a rocket ship. we had 7.35% in 1983 and 5 1/2 in 1984. >> eric: and the tax receipts increase? >> there is some guys curve -- i don't know who the heck it is. we have the highest corporate tax rates in the world and one of the lowest
's taxpayer money. we will never see again. because of all the federal spending, president obama has added $5.8 trillion to the debt in just four years. so this is grim. america is in a bad place economically. but the folks don't seem to care. new "the washington post" poll says 60% of americans have a favorable opinion of president obama. that's a 3 year high. now, that approval may go down due to the sinking economy. there is no question americans like barack obama they are cutting him a tremendous amount of slack. could be style over substance because the president's achievements have been few. obama care is the law. we all know that. but corporations like boston scientific are laying off some workers. largely because of the cost they will incur for obama care health insurance. if that trend takes hold, we're all in big trouble. so we are living in a very interesting time. we have a popular president, a bad economy, and everybody paying more in taxes. simply doesn't add up. pardon the pun. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, an opposing point of view. with us one of the 8 a
a year. you have $1,000 less to spend in 2013. a household with two workers will average about $4,500 less in their paychecks. finally job growth sluggish, unemployment likely to remain around 8%. again, it's according to the associated press. president obama has spent approximately $5 trillion trying to stimulate the economy. that's taxpayer money. we will never see again. because of all the federal spending, president obama has added $5.8 trillion to the debt in just four years. so this is grim. america is in a bad place economically. but the folks don't seem to care. new "the washington post" poll says 60% of americans have a favorable opinion of president obama. that's a 3 year high. now, that approval may go down due to the sinking economy. there is no question americans like barack obama they are cutting him a tremendous amount of slack. could be style over substance because the president's achievements have been few. obama care is the law. we all know that. but corporations like boston scientific are laying off some workers. largely because of the cost they will incur for o
alcoholism. it lubricates corruption . massive spending bills and obama care and the like. the only time we should have that kind of pork stuff is pass the flat tax otherwise ban them. >> rick, you had a piece a couple of months ago saying congress cannot operate without earmarks. >> it is interesting. i got on to a piece after a conversation with jack who got me think being it. before the moratorium went into affect. we had a much easier time getting things through congress. 15 billion before the moratorium on earmarks and it got people to vote for bimings. is it unpleasant? it kind of is. but steve said it is lubrication. >> emac, there is another thing. the kind of thing despite the law still on the hurricane sandy bill had pork in there. >> it is right . that doesn't equate thary - mark band has anything to do with grid lock. but the time and again. congress does the drink country gets the hang over. when they don't exert budgetary displinn. i don't see it. you can see in the appropriation's bills a lot pork spending. >> i will nolt say lubricate but does the grease the skids . >> that
medockity grows. >> if things are so good out of washington d.c. and hear it out of the obama administration on the recovery. how come 47 million americans are on food stamps and the number that we spend on food stamps tripled under obama's watch? >> look, i agree with you. there is no recovery that we can measure here and you can point to how many people are out of work and lost their homes and on food stamps. we need to change our policy and invest and then you cash in. that's the way it works. we need to invest in america first. china is doing it. china's unemployment is 4.9 percent . ours is double that . china is investing with us. the money we pay to borrow for war. >> tracey. >> i believe we should invest but i don't want the government to do it. unemployment is up because of the uncertainty out of washington. companies don't want to expand. get the government out of the way, everything will get back to normal. >> tracey is right. you could see a temporarily sell off in the stock market. it is down from all-time highs because the market knows more medocre, the government will step in
. and the spending deal with president obama, pretty much out of control. so, i'm hoping that steve croft will will get some answers. that will be our lead story on monday night how kroft does. he is going to have to be firm and interrupt. believe me, i have interviewed both the president and the secretary of state. and you have to pin them down. all right? because both of them can do a half hour on one question. it's going to be a fascinating thing to watch. all right? that is the factor tip of the day. check it out on 60 minutes. that is it for us tonight. please check out the fox news factor web site which is different from bill o'reilly.com. also, we would like to you spout off about the factor from anywhere in the world. o'reilly at foxnews.com. witch to opine, word of the day, do not be mendacious when writing to the factor. i would be mendacious in the interview if i was lucky enough to get one with the president and secretary of state. but don't be mendaciou
that president obama told him we don't have a spending problem. really? former senator jim demint is here. if we have no spending problem, senator, why do we need to extend the debt ceiling? why do we need more money? >> greta, the president is running out of excuses. he can't blame the last administration because he is the last administration. president obama has spent more and created more debt than any president in history. yeast, we have the slowest recovery of any recovery in history. i spent last summer, going around my state, talking to small businesses, dozens of them. so it's very clear to me what's happening now. they were beginning to pull back because of the expected cost of obamacare, the dod-frank legislation, that was a federal takeover of our financial system is making it harder for businesses to get loans. you look at the expected tax increases, which businesses were trying to plan for, the uncertainty really goes back to the president's policies. it is not obstruction. i wish we had had more of it. the policies in place are hurting our economy. and even more than that, the unce
-growth and they haven't passed. >> bob: they may say it's pro-growth. i don't buy in to that. >> dana: president obama's bill, the more of it is government spending. you can't expect the economy to be able to take care of itself and grow. just on government spending alone. >> eric: that is the word. "growth." if you just keep spending government money you are not creating growth. just creating fuel -- >> bob: what is wrong with the administration, then? let the cuts take place in defense and domestic spending. >> dana: that is the white house's idea in the first place. before we, go greg has his brush here. been on the whole table the whole time. such a big mouth. >> greg: here we are talking about msnbc and you are lying. this is your brush. >> dana: it is not my brush. this is the one they use for you to bring it out and do your hair. >> kimberly: you are like the fonz. >> greg: i'm going to msnbc. they will understand me there. >> dana: the first order of business for president obama back in 2009. >> the first executive order we are signing. guantanamo will be closed no later than one year from now
from the office of management and budget shows the growth of discretionary spending over the years and notes its expected increase through 2016. this produced by senate republicans blasts president obama for talking a good game on spending and debt but failing to deliver. >> we have kicked the can down the road. we're now at the end of the road. the debt ballooned by 50% so the president's rhetoric and message don't match up. >> they are talking about increasing taxes to hand the upcoming automatic cuts known as sequestration. >> remember, the american people still believe by overwhelming margin that the rich should contribute this. they believe medicare shouldn't whacked and discretionary spending has been hit hard already. >> republicans say the president and democrats have gotten the tax increase already. now g.o.p. leaders are calling on the democratic colleagues to develop a serious plan to address the nation's fiscal issues instead of engaging in political war. bret? >> bret: mike emanuel live on the hill. thank you. still ahead -- 12 surgeons, two arms and one very brave man
of proportion. tonight, both sides from the chief political correspondent carl cameron. >> president obama reportedly said that america doesn't have a spending problem. we know that is not accurate. >> that is the senate's top republican referring to the president's assertion the u.s. does not have a spending problem on the federal debt crisis quoted by house speaker boehner at recent "wall street journal" op-ed. otherring eagerly embrace the sentment and vowed to oppose the discretionary spending cuts, arguing that the debt crisis if spending's role are overhyped on fox news. >> i am not going to keep cutting the discretionary budget which by the way is not out of control. despite what you hear on fox news. >> he said limited if any entitlement reform and intensifying opposition to additional discretionary spending discipline. >> the american people still believe by overwhelming margin that the rich should contribute to this. they believe discretionary spending has been hit hard already. >> for the record, the government accountability office issued a report saying the structural imbalanc
opposed every growth initiative and job creation initiative the president put forward. >> mr. obama issued a number of executive orders. >> bret: consumer spending slowed in desplat pite holiday season. income surged by 2.6%. the dow is down for second day in a row, falling 50 points. the s&p 500 dropped four. the nasdaq was off a fraction. senate signed off on pushing the debt limit deadline to may. senators prove the house bill that also includes provision some insiders are calling a bad idea whose time has come. chief political correspondent tells us more. >> they approved the house back no, budget no, pay bill with the current debt ceiling of $64 trillion in mid-may when it is estimated to be $50 million more. the house and senate have to pass budget by mid-april or member paychecks will be held. >> the united states could default on the obligation every few months. not an ideal way to run a government. a short-term solution is better than another imminent manufacturered crisis. >> house republicans passed budget in the obama era and created the salary threat so senate democrats who ha
obama did say to speaker boehner that we don't have a spending problem, even on the debt commission even after the economy recovering, federal spending is projected to increase faster than revenues so the government will continue to borrow money to spend. that sounds like a spending problem? >> we have doubled spending in the last ten years. revenues this year will be historic highs. so you don't have to guess where the problem is. we are spending too much. we need to cut spending. we need to do it in a predict way so we don't shake up the economy. the fact there has been no defense spending cuts yet. >> greta: not yet. >> so for them to blame the negative growth on that was certainly part of that as defense contractors begin to pull back. this started last summer. businesses all over the country beginning to pare back their plans end of last year, to all the policies that president obama put in place. >> greta: i think it's the insanity that was going on. the fact that nobody knew what his or her taxes were going to be. it wasn't as though -- for the life of me i can't understand how pe
. at least president obama and senator landrieu put the straw man up there, apparently, fox news is their straw man. >> they're very different arguments. mary landrieu's argument, with all due respect is nuts. the idea that discretionary spending's not too high, the idea that this government's not too big, the idea that the deficit isn't too large, this is not a fox news problem, this is a wash politician problem. i think they can try to find somebody tolls blame all they want to. she has to go back home and explain why she's failing to do her job. by the way, in the senate, which is not passed a budget for 3 years. >> you know what i don't understand is both the president calling out fox and senator landrieu calling out fox. and fox has the most viewers and it's the number-1 cable news, it's fully universed in a 300-million-plus country. but we have three or four million viewers a night at a given time. why -- why are they so terrified that they keep bringing up fox news? what is so -- what is the impact on them? >> i think that they are so used to having an elite media which pr
obama stimulus, healthcare, does that have a big impact? >> i think it has. no question that his aagain da was to in a sense spend us out of recession and that didn't work and a lot of the money ended up being captured in washington august. if you look at the per capita average stimulus money washington, d.c. got nine times what the average american got outside of washington. >> sean: how does, washington, get 15% of all of the federal budget? >> that is the crisis we are in. the crisis is where you have a president or party of big government and the junior party s the party of little big government but you no party of limited government. what we have and you see this with the stimulus and the bailouts of the banks that everything s concentrated in washington now. the rest of the country has not pulled out of the recession. washington has the lowest unemployment and highest per cap income. >> sean: a real estate market that is the most robust in the country. they are doing fine. we are nonpartisan in this. this is both party's problems. what is scary is if you listen to the president's
the sequestration deal, and everybody stopped spending but you know the seed0s the last quarter's gdp were sow n in the summer of 2012 when president obama put politics ahead of our national security or any economic growth. its its ridiculous. >> that's the most important word, growth. when the economy opportunity grow you have no way of digging yourself out of the ditch. the 16-1/2 trillion ditch. here's my point. if the government stops pending, if the economy is so weak that when the government does stop spending, it goes into a neglect testify growth or recessioner in period, that's not the sign of a healthy economy? >> if agree with you. but keep in mine what i'm homing now, eric, we city a little stability, at least until 2014 elections. we know that people over 200,000 a year are going to pay 4-1/2% more in tax. we know there's certain stability. let's hope we wet through the debt ceiling crisis, and then you'll see the private sector invest. if there's one thing this president is going to be known for, he is all over the social issues, guns and gay marriage and healthcare but has done no
is important, it really doesn't have any connection in terms of creating jobs in the short term. obama has made it clear he would like to do more stimulus spending. repu republicans aren't open to that. they control half of -- control the house and democrats control the senate. it remains to be seen what will happen. the deficit is a problem and needs to be dealt with. it is not going to progress the way it is raised. >> for the fourth quarter he slufrpgs in terms of growth. now is the worst possible time to cut spending even further. the economists look at this slijage and say it was due in large parts of federal spending being cut. what is the con sefb tive answer -- conservative answer to that? >> we spent nearly a trillion dollars in the initial stimulus bill in january or february 2009. we have spent hundreds of billions more over the next 3 and a half years to try to stimulate the economy. we have gotten sadly used to this new normal between the gdp of 1 and say 2 percent. that is the status in the united states of america. we have the worst u.s. recovery ever on record in this president.
'm negotiating and obama is going win, and the only way have you power if you're together. is that-did-. >> i think you're right there. number one issue with american people is out of control spending. you know? we took our actions with the no budget no, pay. this weekend, when i was in california, with some of my colleagues people were excited we lay down the law and realize senate hasn't done their job. they want to see us hold senate accountable and push forward to cut back spending and cut putt us on the road to fiscal health. >> have you ever gotten in a room? has anyone said we need to get together? >> we -- that is -- it's been said over and over. when the speaker brings yet another bill that gives away our leverage and not cut spending that is all we hear. i love football but get tired of football metaphors. there is no team but if you're getting kickoff, and you take it and start running towards your own goal, don't expect me to block for you going the wrong goal wrk he need to be together. and things we've agreed on, that is what we agreed on. we haven't stood by things we pledged t
or else we have no power against obama? has that happened? >> it's been said over and over, when the speaker brings yet another bill, and lives away our leverage and has not cut spending, then that's all we hear. >> i love football, my favorite support and get tired of football metaphors, there's no i in team and only one quarterback in the huddle. and a better football metaphor is, if you're getting the kickoff and you take it and start running toward your own goal, don't expect me to block for you going the wrong goal. you know, we need to be together on the things we agree on. >> i agree. >> and every one of us took a pledge, called a pledge and that's what we agreed on, but we haven't stood by the things that we pledged that's the next challenge. >> a great pledge. >> sean: how about the party that's for a balanced budget against generational theft and a party that's for entitlement reform and won't give in. if everybody has power-- >> and social security by not letting it go broke, we're going to protect future generations, we ought to be having the seniors and the young peo
. >> greta: is this going to continue? former speaker newt gingrich joins us. apparently president obama and landrieu, fox man is the straw man? >> it's very different arguments. mary's argument with all due respect to senator, is nuts. the idea that discretionary spending is not too high? the idea that this government is not too big? the idea isn't too large? this is not a fox news problem. this is a washington politician problem. i think they can try to find somebody else to blame all they want to. she has to go back home and explain why she is failing as a senator to do her job. in the senate when has no, sir passed a budget for three years. >> greta: i don't understand, both the president calling out fox and senator landrieu calling out fox even though it's fully in a 300 million plus country. we have three or four million viewers a night at a given time. why are they so terrified. they keep bringing up fox news. >> i think they are so used to having an elite media which protects them. it drives them crazy to have somebody who stands up and tries to explore the facts. i think they al
covers floods. ♪ visit floodsmart.gov/pretend to learn your risk. >> the obama administration likes to say they're doing everything they can to keep spending down. right? >> we're consolidating programs that are duplicative. how can we eliminate additional waste? >> we also wanted to protect against any and all cases of waste, fraud and abuse. >>brian: a new study indicates that despite their intentions, big government is still wasting millions and possibly billions of dollars in duplicate funding for research. stuart varney is here. the economy is not growing. we expected something different because the jobs numbers look pretty good. >>steve: our economy at the moment is contracting, and that's -- look, a whole bunch of excuses as to why this is happening. years ago it was the tsunami. that's what's hurting. then it was the wicked europeans. then it was those wicked republicans. now of course it's president bush all over again. or sanding or lower defense spending. there's always an excuse. the fact is we've spent an enormous amount of money -- trillions of dollars -- building up o
security and medicare? does president obama want to destroy the republican party? >> obviously republicans want to make sure the entitlement programs are here for future generations. right now for every dollar we spend on young people we are spending four dollars on seniors. right now in medicare the average person pays for one third of the cost of the medicare program. now, dick durbin for what it is worth has been one of those people willing sit down and solve that problem and i congratulate him on that. as far as the president's goal of annihilating the republican party. i will say that i was glad to see that the house was unified behind something recently as it relates to the fiscal issues and i think that is a backstop to that. the fact is the one thing the president didn't mention in his speech was the major fiscal issue that our nation faces. it was everything but that and to me that was disheartening. it is the one issue that before anything else we need to put in the rear view mirror to make our country stronger. >> chris: senator durbin you are a member of a bipartisan group of s
they didn't know. >> it is just the beginning there elements of obama care that have not yet been put into effect. we will spend the next year or two or five or ten allergic what's in this massive piece of legislation. it's going to be like christmas. >> go to ff weekend on twitter and let us know how you feel he about that story. also this story. remember this teacher down in south carolina? he in his classroom there in an effort to show how incredible freedom in this country is, and freedom of speech, ripped an american flag off of the wall in one ever american classments on three different occasions and stomped on it to show his class, he says is an educational exercise that this is freedom of speech. this is why america is free because we are able to express ourselves in this way without being thrown in prison. he was fired for that. now he wants his job back. >> it sounds like, i mean, well, let me get the other side. it sounds like first during this lesson he spoke glowingly of the united states and of the freedoms and privileges we have here. is he not known as anti-american te
, obama's clinton role agenda calling it liberal. >> the president wants to be a transformational president not by moving to the center but by pushing an agenda that involves higher taxes, more spending on social programs and no cuts in entitlements. we have problems with the debt, deficit, and entitlements and unless we take them on we do the country a disservice. >> it is like "i gotcha" and here is the real thing. bigger government and more taxes. what was interesting about the speech, it was so uncompromising in the sense there was no discussion whatever about the economy. i heard nothing about the economy or nothing about debt or the fact this country is going broke, it was about expanding government. as doug said, it, in an effort to move left, the reality of the times is going to fit in but he has made his hard play. that is what it was. >>gregg: americans want the deficit to be addressed but without medicare cuts. look at that poll, 58 percent, no cuts. what tour make of this? >> and 89 percent of the people do not want to change anything to do with medicare. the speech th
you in this new role as president obama's nominee for secretary of state. but my approach to this role, if confirmed, is also deeply informed by the 28-plus years that i have been privileged to spend in the senate. that percent specht tiff will remain with me if confirmed as secretary. and i'm already excited by the many ways that we can work together, and in which we must work together in order to advance america's security interests in a complicated and ever more dangerous world. i would add that i'm particularly aware that in many ways the greatest challenge to america's foreign policy will be in your hands, not mine, because while it's often said that we can't be strong at home if we're not strong in the world, in these days of fiscal crisis, and as a recovering member of the super committee, i am especially cognizant of the fact that we can't be strong in the world unless we're strong at home. and the first priority of business, which will affect my credibility as a diplomat, and our credibility as a nation, as we work to help other countries create order, the first priority will
against the u.s. state department after said abedini finds out he will spend the next eight years of his life in iran's most brutal prison for the crime of evan gellization. he is a christian. the white house is now saying that the obama administration has been actively helping the pastor's family. here is jay carney. >> we condemn iran's continued violation of the universal right of freedom of religion and we call on the iranian authorities to release mr. abedini. as you know the state department is in close contact with the abedini family. is actively engaged on this case. martha: interesting. that is not what we've heard when we've spoken with the family but the pastor's wife says the statent do, as i said is really not doing everything they can. she said every day counts. he is being tortured. they could do so much more. i have been so heart-broken. as low we're letting the iranian government lead with their interpretation what he has done wrong instead of protecting our american ideals. at the very least secretary clinton should publicly call for the unequivocal release of saeed abe
american national security and keep the peace. and i worry that president obama has picked senator hagel because really the defense department is the only part of the government that he seems to be willing to cut. he's not really interested in reining in spending in almost any other area except national security. he said the sequester, which is the $1.2 trillion in cuts that are scheduled to go in effect, which disproportion athlete affect defense spending, the president said during the campaign, ain't going to happen of the well, it's going to happen. it's going to happen here in about six weeks. >> steve: before you go, something that looks like will happen is it looks like it's bipartisan plan to reform immigration. what do you think? >> i hope so. we'll hear from the president this week, but it really requires presidential leadership, like so many of these issues, because it's easy for people to sort of get off in their corner and argue their particular agenda. but it's hard to come together on big complex -- >> steve: so it's up to the president? >> it's up to all of us, but the pre
